Asian Small-Clawed Otter

Asian small-clawed otters use their highly sensitive paws as fast food finders to grab crabs and frogs in murky, muddy riverbeds. They also have super-sensitive noses—to them, each otter’s scent is as individual as your fingerprints. Although otters are protected by international law, many face extinction due to habitat loss, pollution and demand for their thick, velvety fur. SeaWorld saves otters through breeding and rescue programs.
